February Doily of the Month

Welcome to the February Doily of the Month! Each month in 2016 we will share a new doily pattern for you to make in Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread. We challenged the top doily designers to create innovate designs that coordinate with the feeling of each month. Plus, every month we will select five winners to receive an Aunt Lydia’s prize pack.

For February, we have a Valentine Heart Doily. With a center swirl and hearts around the outside, it’s the perfect piece to decorate for the holiday.

Lacy Cowl 3 Colorful Ways

This month we are featuring one of my favorite cowls in 3 Colorful Ways. It was first designed by Nancy Thomas in our new Sparkle Soft yarn in White. Everyone in the office oohed and aahed when it arrived. So it was a natural choice for wanting to see it worked up in other yarns. We re-knit it in Unforgettable in Petunia (that looks great on everyone) and then also in the new Papaya shade of With Love (an on-trend color that is in all the fashion reports). It an easy lace pattern that is perfect for those wanting to try a small project with lace – which is really just a pretty name for making holes in your knitting. You’ll find separate patterns for each of the 3 cowls linked to their photos below. The patterns are written out and charts are included that are nice to follow for the lace patterns.
